Winter delight

A standard cafe fare with a nice view. It sounds like the crowd fighting goes on in summer time though since this sunny blue sky day in winter sees only a handful of people up here. The coffee is good and service a good solid 4 stars. There are nicer views in/of Florence but those I shall not... read more

Incredible and spectacular views from a rooftop central to florence. Went at Sunset, great for wine and beautiful to see the lights come on all around Florence, Duomo is spectacular from this vantage point!

We came here for a couple of glasses of wine and to watch the sun go down on our first evening in Florence. The terrace is small so we were lucky to get a seat, even better that it was one overlooking the Duomo. The service was good but I can't comment on the food as we didn't have any..... More

We went to the roof top cafe in la Rinascente after we had walked up the Campanile. I had read in the rough guide to Florence this had great views, and was the perfect stop for a cappuccino. It did not disappoint! Very lovely.

My family of four adults made our way through the department store and up to the bar at the top. The view that we were presented with was wonderful. Had 3 beers and a bottle of water. Not cheap, but then again a view like that is worth paying for. The fans that sprayed water helped to keep us cool... More

We tried the strawberry cake which was good but expensive (7euros). The cold tea was also expensive 5euros just for 1 cup... Same price for a tonica. Service was not very good. You just pay the view and the terrasse...

After a challenge of narrow elevators or narrow escelators and fight through the narrow lanes within the department store you are awarded by one of the most breathless view of Florence. The perfect place to have a coffee break or some sandwiches for lunch. Nothing special but the location and the view. But start to train your ellbows to fight... More

I could not believe such an amazing cafe was above a department store! A great way to escape the tourists and enjoy Florence! The food was simple but the view and atmosphere was incredible!

If you want to go to bar with fantastic views of the city. Head here. Go into the department store and the bar is on the top floor. Service was slow but enjoyed our couple of drunks here.

We saw this when standing on the Piazza Repubblica so we went exploring. It is in the Rinascente Department Store which is a bit like a mini Selfridges. It takes a while to find the stairs up to the cafe but is well worth it. We went early Sunday morning and had a relaxed coffee and pastries. Not cheap but... More
